What my objective is with all this is that essentially, I'm trying to collate all information from all the books, internet sources, and weird RP guides that I have into one place, formatted into subjects and in a style that you guys (and I) can use productively.

It will also allow me to pontificate at length on incredibly niche historical topics, which is an opportunity that I have to seize as I get it.

What I'm basically trying to do is to lock down all the individual files in regard to

- Vehicles appearing in the operation
- Weaponry/tech appearing in the operation
- Location info pertinent to operation
- Historical people relevant to the operation, organized by nation and role
- Relevant background information on campaigns, intrigues, and battles
- Interesting historical questions implicated
- Weird speculative bullshit

before the actual op starts, so I don't have to worry about it during the actual IC.

I'll also put it out there that if you guys wanted to put something in the record this way, maybe as the basis for a future thing with your characters or for a plotline or something, I'd be happy to work on it/edit it/put it in.

As some of you already know, we'll be bringing back the whole gimmick of Excalibur Squadron having our own ship.
Unlike before, we do have a custom design, courtesy of Goram. It is: excellent.

A question to all of you: should we keep the old name, or should we try and do another name-vote?
I have no real preference either way.

Llamrei still works for me. Just this time, she's bigger, faster and comes with a metric shit ton of firepower.

It's coming home.

Half a bee, philosophically, must ipso facto half not be. But half the bee has got to be, vis-à-vis its entity - do you see? But can a bee be said to be or not to be an entire bee when half the bee is not a bee, due to some ancient injury?

Hoping to get the OOC up tomorrow evening. It's a busy weekend for me (I'm running a Wrestlemania party at my local bar on Sunday), so it'll either be tomorrow or Saturday night.

Will we keep the same IC? I think we should, honestly.

I don’t mind either way, but if we’re keeping most of the same story/premise that would probably be easiest.

But how would we account for all the missing people?

Edit: looks like everyone who hasn't checked in save Kour is still alive, maybe Tigger might want to drop some telegrams to see if they're still interested.

I understand your point in that regard - this is going to be pretty weird to do a blow-by-blow redo of something we've already done less than a year ago (and something I've done a total of about three times now...), but I think the fact we're missing people and some people want to go in different directions or maybe do different characters makes a restart basically mandatory. I'm not the biggest fan, but I don't see a way around it.

I'll work on it when the new OOC goes up. I think that may be the impetus to get inactives out of hiding, if they want to. Lord knows I'm the last one to criticize on that score
